Embracing wounds, Orders of Magnitude, Meme University and many more...
How are you doing this week?
4 Things I thought worth sharing with y’all
1. Life full of Wounds.
Since childhood, I’ve been a naughty kid.
Breaking things, Running everywhere, scratched knees & wounds all over the body
When I got into an accident and got a wound on the upper part of the nose, I realized that I have to live with this wound forever.
It looks like a wound when you get your nose broken in a fight :(
I wanted to create videos and share my knowledge through video content.
But I’ve always been nervous and anxious about sharing my face on the internet with that big a*s scar
2. NOBODY CARES
This week I came across one of my followers on Twitter.
He has over 200k subscribers on YouTube and he shares knowledge in Hindi.
Guess what? he has a scar on his face.
That’s when I realized if your work and knowledge sharing method is good, NOBODY REALLY CARES.
Let’s look on the bright side
In Nov 2018, I was backpacking in Ahmedabad - I broke my leg.
I couldn’t really do anything and had to stay home for over a month. I started thinking about what to do and that's when the idea hit me.
I need to figure out doing something REMOTE.
I took up video editing again as I always loved documenting stories. (I started learning video editing in college)
Within a month I got freelancing gigs and people offering jobs (I hardly had 3-5 videos on my YT channel)
This week I closed one of the biggest clients ever. (That too paying in Dollars)
What’s the point of living, with no wounds
Take that adventure, do things you love, get scared, miss a heart-beat, love your wounds and live a life that you could look back to and say “Man I was a wild kid back then”
CREATE STORIES FOR YOUR GRANDCHILDREN
